  • Bearing Witness: Books Abroad Discusses Rape Culture and Roxane Gay's Not That Bad

    The Global Women's Caucus invites you to join us for another Books Abroad meeting on Sunday, February 3, 2019 to discuss Roxane Gay's latest publication Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture. This work, edited by Gay, is a collection of stories from people whose experiences may sound all-too-familiar.

    In her review in The Guardian, Hannah Jane Parkinson writes, "Gay notes in her introduction that she originally envisioned Not That Bad as a series of journalistically reported essays and features, genuine dispatches. Instead, the book is mostly confessional, first-person storytelling. And the storytelling is very good – observationally sharp, the writing often as vivid as bruises." In our discussion, we'll unpack these painful, but important stories and position them within the greater context of a country that allows for gender and sexual violence and often silences survivors. 

    A theme of this year's Women's March (please see the GWC website for resources and events near you) is combating violence against women with a sub-theme of pushing the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Please join us as we continue listening to these important voices and discuss real steps that we can take--like passing the ERA--to eradicate rape culture.
